IATA has appointed Conrad Clifford as Regional Vice President for Asia Pacific.

Conrad joins IATA on 1 February 2014 and will be based in its Asia Pacific Regional Office in Singapore. He succeeds Maunu von Lueders, who is retiring from IATA.

Conrads career in aviation spans over 30 years. Most recently he served as Acting Managing Director of Antrak Air Ghana (2012 to 2013), and was formerly CEO of Monarch Travel Group (2010 to 2012) and of Virgin Nigeria (2005 to 2009). His career has also included work for Cathay Pacific Airways, Virgin Atlantic Airways, Menzies Aviation Group and Emirates.

Conrad, said, "I look forward to leading IATA in Asia Pacific as we embark on the 2nd century of commercial aviation. The region offers tremendous opportunities. Many of the regions governments are using aviation as a critical element of their economic strategies. Some, however, are struggling to provide the foundation for the industrys success. In both cases IATA has an important role to play. I, personally, will place a key priority on further developing IATAs partnerships across the region. These will enable IATAs global standards and global perspective to deliver maximum value to the safe, sustainable and profitable development of aviation."

Maunu von Lueders will retire from IATA on 14 March 2014.
